Use Mixam!

Really exemplary customer service. I was notified when some files I'd sent had errors in them that I had missed, and was given friendly and prompt advice whenever I had questions. Also, I literally couldn't find anywhere that printed what I needed for a lower price. Arrived on time, and the product was top quality. Great experience, would recommend highly.
Great service

Brilliant service once again. Goods arrived 2 days agead of schedule and were excellent quality.
Excellent Product - Excellent Service
[Booklets]
Simple interface, easily loaded booklet pages. Looked after superbly well at all stages by the guys and gals. Delivered earlier than expected... And the book quality is second to none. Gorgeous stock, excellent print quality... not a bad word to say! If you hadn't guessed... Mixam will be my printer of choice from now on. Simply excellent.
Great quality, great price
[Booklets]
After much research online to find somewhere to print our publication, we decided that Mixam had the best options and price. (We'd previously had a less-than-great experience with a cheaper printer). The quality of this printing was exceptional and went for a much more reasonable price than many other printers who gave us a quote. 5 stars!
Very simple to upload and very helpful staff on the phone

I have been using this company for last four years and every time the whole process have gone really smoothly. Very simple to upload and very helpful staff on the phone. Price and quality is also outstanding. Many thanks Busy Bee Motorcycle Club
Great but delivery good be better
[Booklets]
The product I received was great, and the process of uploading artwork couldn't be easier. Nicola, who helped with my order was really diligent and helpful, responding to messages quickly. However delivery was a little bit vague- to clarify I am yet to receive my order. I understand that on the website it is noted that estimated delivery times are given but I wasn't given a tracking number on the dispatch of my order which meant that I literally had no idea of when it was arriving. This might not be helped by the fact that I'm in Northern Ireland but on your site it says that customers will be provided with a tracking number when their order is dispatched. I had to push back the release of my publication by a week due to uncertainty over when my items were due to arrive.
Awesome service...
[Booklets]
Quick to respond to questions and queries and excellent delivery time. Its great to finally find a site where you can order the amount of material you want rather than having to order in bulk!
Strongly recommended!!!

Fabulous quality print at a very competitive price. Extremely easy to upload and order. We have already recommended Maxim to others and will be using them again.
Very satisfied

Very happy with my purchase and I would recommend in the future. Thank you.
Flexible Options
[Booklets]
Our motive to use Mixam for the latest run of booklets was the flexibility of paper options. We could choose exactly what type of paper we used for the cover and inside pages with the finishes we desired. Mixam were true to their word on timings for the delivery and regular updates informed me when the booklets would arrive. Overall a very good service at a competitive price.
Easy, efficient booklet printing

Ordered 100 full colour A4 booklets which have come out very well and order process was straightforward and the booklets were delivered on time.
Absolutely recommend 100%
[Booklets]
I had 85 booklets made with 28 pages; the finishing for the booklet was amazing, and the lady even worked on my design to improve its fit on the page. The other lady I spoke with even gave me advice on how to produce the perfect booklet. The price for all this was unmatched anywhere else online. The delivery was also speedy and efficient as it was done by DPD. Overall, I've only had good experiences with Mixam, and I'll definitely use it again. Overall, I have had only good experi
wonderful
[Booklets]
I used this company when printing out my art project. I'm not a designer so I was very nervous about getting something wrong in the files I sent and having to print again. The people there received my file before printing and made sure everything was alright. The printing is of good quality and really bring out the images. The price was alright (although I was printing the minimum amount, so it probably would have been better value for money if I had printed in batch.) I was surprised by the speed of processing, as it only took half an hour. All in all, great experience very pleased with printing quality and customer service. Would greatly recommend
Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
As with all of our products, we ask that the file is supplied as single individual pages, not double pages.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
